Merchandising

Get everything in the right place at the right time for the right people

Customers dictate retail. Whether it’s in-store, online or over the phone, they want to know what’s available and how soon they can get it. But trying to keep up with competing demands from different channels can cause chaos behind the scenes.

Our end-to-end solution synchronises all functions within the retail cycle –purchasing, receiving, pricing, stock management, allocation, replenishment, order management, in-store stock management and warehousing – to help you buy smart and sell through efficiently.

Planning

Plan at the lowest level and keep category and store plans synchronised

Retail is constantly changing. And in the face of competitor campaigns, unpredictable weather and emerging trends, it’s even more important that you can re-plan swiftly.

Our planning solution is based on the fundamental merchandising practice of getting the right merchandise in the right place at the right time.

Driven by a powerful calculation engine, it automates the time-consuming tasks associated with planning, enabling you to spend more time on the things that truly drive your business.

RFID

Track and trace every item to increase sales and improve customer service

By combining RFID technology and wireless connectivity, our solution means you can track and monitor every item accurately, from the point it arrives at a warehouse/distribution centre to when the customer takes it home. This means you get:

  • stock count and movement reports by item
  • stock replenishment reports by item and item groups
  • stock movements tracked and managed across your supply-chain
  • replenishment reports by item across store-groups
  • advanced capabilities such as detection of misplaced items catalogues.

"We chose BT Expedite because it was the only organisation that was able to provide a full end-to-end solution together with the essential professional services. This de-risked the project while allowing us to concentrate upon running the business while the implementation was in progress"
